These anti-aircraft fortifications, built in 1938 during the Spanish Civil War and left to crumble, offer a spectacular panoramic view of Barcelona with much better detail of Sagrada Familia than at the more family-friendly viewing point of Tibidabo. Best experienced at dusk, it’s a super hipster and super romantic spot – there’s not much more than you, the concrete, the sunset and the city lights.
The large and leafy Horta-Guinardó district is characterised by steep streets and a quieter atmosphere than some of the more centrally located and touristy areas. It’s home to Parc del Laberint d’Horta and borders Park Güell to the southwest. The closest metro station is Alfons X, which is a 20-minute walk away that takes you through the Parc del Guinardó.
